What a great experience with Latifa and her family. It was great to be given a choice of what to cook. Have done many cooking classes around the world and Latifa was the best. Approachable, patient and a true insight into the culture.

A more authentic experience it would be hard to find! The very lovely Latifa came to our Riad and took us shopping in the market for the meat herbs and vegtables that we would need! Latifa was very sensitive towards me as i am not pleased with livestock markets! We were then taken to an authenric morrocan family home and... More

He speaks good English so we could ask all the questions we wanted. The cookery class takes place in his family home where we were made very welcome. Here we were... More

I can only echo the other excellent reviews for this cooking class. We had a fantastic day, the best of our trip, with Aziz, Khalid and his welcoming family. The price was 400 MAD per person which was great value for the three courses and the insight into Morac culture. The local market and experience of a traditional home and... More

It was one of the best experiences of my holidays in Morocco. I was picked up at the hotel by Khalid. We went to the local market, where we bought all the ingredients for the meal. With a taxi we went to his home where Aziz a professional cook waited for us. We prepared a rich meal with a starter... More

I was collected from my hotel by Khalid and then taken through the local market to select some local produce. Both Khalid and the Chef Aziz were lovely. I had a great time learning to cook a traditional Moroccan Tagine, and enjoyed a 3-course meal including starter and dessert. I would recommend this experience which is done in a local... More

Prior to travelling to Morocco we tried contacting Essaouira taste using the online form on their website and via email to no avail. Upon arrival in Essaouira we thought we would give it one last try and telephone them. We were delighted when they said that we could do the market visit and class the next day and I communicated...

What a unique opportunity to experience a hands-on Moroccan cooking class in a local Essaouira home. Fatima is warm and inviting, genuinely happy to have you as her guest as you learn to make tagine!
